🦩How to crush your 2024 goals

"We overestimate what we can do in a day and underestimate what we can do in a year." (Several people have said some form of this quote, including Tim Ferris, Bill Gates, and Gretchen Rubin.)

🤓 Did you know that over 90% of people who set New Year's resolutions give up within the first 2 months of the year? Mostly because they set UNREALISTIC goals or didn't have a plan.

So how are we going to buck the trend and be among the elite 10% who do?

Imagine yourself, a year from now, you're looking back at your 2024 accomplishments:

You're stronger, healthier, and more energetic.
You learned a new skill.
You invested in developing your personal brand. 
You practiced becoming a better speaker, writer, and communicator. 
You expanded your network with genuine connections. 
You're less stressed because you're more organized and working less.
You did more deep work you enjoy.
You volunteered more or supported causes you care about.
You took an extra vacation or traveled more.  
You went on more walks and enjoyed more sunrises and sunsets. 
You spent more quality time with your loved ones.
You hugged more, kissed more, and loved more. 🥰

Whatever your goals for this year are, here's how to set yourself up for success.

7 Hacks to Crush Your New Year's Goals

1.  📒 Plan and Write Your Goals Down. Whether it's the Bullet Journal or some other framework, writing down your goals is the first step to staying focused and succeeding. 

2. Ask the Right Questions. Reflect on where you are and where you hope to be. How hard are you willing to work to reach your goal? What do you need to STOP, START, and CONTINUE to reach your goals? 

3.  😎 Apply the 30-for-30 Approach: This is a great hack from Sahil BloomDo the thing you're trying to improve at for 30 minutes per day for 30 straight days. That's 900 total minutes of accumulated effort in just 1 month. You'll be AMAZED at the results.

4. ✌🏼 The Two-Day Rule: With whatever habit you're trying to build, never allow yourself to skip more than 1 day in a row. Skipping 1 day won't hurt your habit-building, as long as you don't skip the next one.

5.  Habit Stacking: James Clear argued that we execute most effectively when systems are fixed to a time or action that makes them easy. Example: I'll journal 30 minutes before bed, or I’ll do 25 pushups when I get out of bed.

6. 🏃‍♂️ Minimum Viable Progress: Never skip a day, but anything above zero counts. Have a goal in mind to do 30 minutes of the action every single day—but if you can’t hit that, do any tiny amount above zero. Anything above zero compounds!

7. 📈 Progress Over Perfection: Focus on effort vs outcome. Consistency over intensity. Review your goals daily, weekly, and monthly to track your progress and see how far you've come.

There are two types of people – those who make excuses and those who MAKE IT HAPPEN…You've got this! 

Cheers to a FLAMTASTIC 2024!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
